Key words : Conventional agriculture, Environment, Natural resources and sustainability. Abstract - It is well known that about one third of the world’s land surface is under agriculture. Environment has a direct influence on existence and sustainability of agriculture as it depends upon the. use of natural resources. Undoubtedly, agriculture has a greater environmental impact on Earth than. any other single human activity.

Human impact on the environment or anthropogenic impact on the environment includes changes to biophysical environments and ecosystems, biodiversity, and natural resources caused directly or indirectly by humans, including global warming, environmental degradation (such as ocean acidification), mass extinction and biodiversity loss,. Humanity's overall impact on the planet is affected by many factors, not just the raw number of people

The environmental impact of agriculture involves a variety of factors from the soil, to. .Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment.

The environmental impact of agriculture involves a variety of factors from the soil, to water, the air, animal and soil variety, people, plants, and the food itself. In 2000 the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) found that "the role of population dynamics in a local setting may vary from decisive to negligible," and that deforestation can result from "a combination of population pressure and stagnating economic, social and technological conditions. 1016/S0167-8809(01)00354-1. "UN Report on Climate Change" (PDF).

This monograph is part of a series of reports that explain how techniques of spatial analysis can be used to investigate poverty and environment links worldwide. It combines rural population distribution data contained in the global rural population database for the year 2000 with methods and results of the "Global agro-ecological assessment for agriculture in the 21st century", in order to estimate the distribution of the world's rural population by agricultural suitability class, land-use category and type of farming system.
